Business Courier: Uptown Cincinnati sees continued growth

UC's increased enrollment, construction projects contribute to development

The University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and the rest of Uptown Cincinnati have seen growth, which is only expected to accelerate, the Cincinnati Business Courier reported.

UC has eclipsed 50,000 students, which includes the main campus, UC Blue Ash, UC Clermont and online. By 2030, the university aims to have 60,000 students enrolled.

To keep up with the robust growth, UC is renovating some of its facilities such as Siddall Hall, Sheakley Athletic Center and Old Chemistry building.

The university also is working on updating its master plan.

The UC Medical Center’s emergency room expansion, opening of Digital Futures and growth of Cincinnati Children’s also have been part of the continued development of the region.

“I'm extremely bullish on what the future is Uptown and our city will be,” former Mayor John Cranley said.
